You can’t blame the internet for loving Hirono, Ginsburg and Waters. They’re tough. They’re professional. They’re calling out your b.s. and, in the process, they’re speaking for the millions of women in America who have been talked over, walked over, dismissed or ignored by a man at some point (or many points) in their lives.
If only every woman could reclaim her time from that know-it-all Steve at the 9 o’clock staff meeting, as Waters did at a Financial Services Committee hearing last year when Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin simply would not shut his money hole.
And how many of us would love to tell our male colleagues (some of you, not all, of course) that the decisions you’re making ignore reality for half the office?
